Arts and Sciences is an enriched program that emphasizes the interconnections of knowledge across its various disciplines. The program follows a rigorous course of study in Mathematics, Sciences, Social Sciences, and it incorporates courses in the Visual Arts.
The program also features specially-conceived English and Humanities courses which seek to integrate knowledge acquired in other Arts and Sciences courses in order to explore the relationships, between literature, humanities, science, and history.
Becoming part of a collaborative community of teachers and learners significantly enhances Arts and Sciences students` educations and optimizes their personal experiences of CEGEP.
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THE PROGRAM OFFERED AT JAC FROM OTHERS LIKE IT
John Abbott is the only public English CEGEP to offer the Arts and Sciences program. Our program involves a somewhat reduced complement of science and math courses in comparison to the College’s Science program. This allows Arts ans Sciences students to prepare for science studies at university while also exploring the social sciences and visual arts. The Arts and Sciences Humanities and English courses constitute an expansive sequence that will help students contextualize and reflect critically on knowledge learned in this comprehensive program’s distinct areas of study.
